Foster Holly Trees

Zone Dallas 75249 | suziebq added on March 5, 2017 | Answered

I am new to having Foster holly trees. A landscape company put them in for me. But some of the berries are turning black. Leaves are turning brown. I water the trees 2x a week in the early morning. I put holly/evergreen tree spikes in the ground. Am I doing something wrong? Should I give them aspirin watering? Not sure what to do for them. I have not taken any pictures of them yet.

Watering is generally the biggest issue with newly planted trees and shrubs.
Generally daily water for the first 2 weeks, then 3 to 4 times a week for the next few weeks.
Review the care information in the link below to make sure the trees were properly planted for you. Check the soil to make sure it is well draining!
